CREW-1 LAUNCH TO ISS, Nov 15, 2020, KSC, 7:27 pm ET, KSC

(NASA TV begins 3:15 pm ET)

Update, November 13:  The Crew-1 launch has been delayed for one day, from November 14 to November 15, due to weather.  The new launch time on November 15 is 7:27 pm ET.  NASA TV coverage begins 3:15 pm ET.

Although the launch slipped only one day, the travel time to ISS will be 27 hours instead of 8.5 hours due to orbital mechanics, so docking will take place at about 11:00 pm ET on November 16.

Update, October 26:  The launch has been rescheduled for November 14, 2020 at 7:49 pm ET.  NASA TV coverage begins 3:30 pm ET and continue through docking and hatch opening.

If launch takes place on time, docking will be about 8.5 hours later at 4:04 am ET and hatch opening at 6:20 am ET on November 15.

Update, October 10:  The launch has been delayed until early-to-mid November.

Update September 28:  NASA and SpaceX have delayed the launch for a week, until October 31, 2020 at 2:40 am ET.  That will “deconflict the Crew-1 launch and arrival from upcoming Soyuz launch and landing operations.”  The Soyuz MS-17 crew will arrived at ISS on October 14 and the Soyuz MS-16 crew will depart on October 21.

Original Entry: The first operational flight of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS) is targeted for October 23, 2020.  Called Crew-1, it will launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.  Details such as launch and docking times have not been publicly announced.

It will deliver a four-person crew to the ISS as the beginning of routine crew-rotation missions for this spacecraft.

The four astronauts are:

  • Michael Hopkins, NASA
  • Vic Glover, NASA
  • Soichi Noguchi, JAXA
  • Shannon Walker, NASA
